Firewall

Firewall

Installed Norton Security Suite.

How can I tell if Comcast/Norton/ConstantGuard firewall is up and running?

Re: Firewall

Hi SanFranSam,

 

On the main page of NSS, select the Advanced Square and see if Smart Firewall displays as ON under Network Function.

 

 

A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The 'United States of America', for an amount of 'up to and including my life.'

Re: Firewall

thanks for the help.  I didn't see an Advanced Square.  But under Settings I did find two indicators that show the firewall is ON.

 

Under Quick Controls the Smart Firewall boxed is X'ed.  And under Detailed Settings, clicking on the word Firewall shows the switch for Smart Firewall as ON.

Hi SanFranSam, 

Sorry - my bad!  Smiley Sad

That should have been Security Square > Advanced > Smart Firewall

 

Glad you found it in the other places also in site of my error.
